    • It may seem boring at first but it ends up being such a good workout and is much harder than it seems! Thanks for reading! x

  1. I loved this post!! I literally wrote up a post last night about a few things one can do to live a healthier lifestyle; it’s going up next week:) I definitely agree with you that working out at home before joining the gym can help with so much, whether it’s what exercises you find that you enjoy, or getting used to using your body weight before transitioning to actual weights.

    • Oo I’ll make sure to check it out once it’s up! Exactly! Working out from home is a great way to start your fitness journey, and it’s so easy too! Thanks for reading! xx

  2. Needed to read this today! I am really trying to get fitter and tone up a bit and have been so lost on where to begin! I go to the gym but I think it’s the consistency that I need to improve, some weeks I will go four mornings before work and then I will only go once the next week! Thankyou for recommending the Fitness Blender I will have to have a look at that 🙂

    • Consistency can easily become a problem when our routines are a bit all over the place, that’s why I’ve been loving working out from home! Squeeze in a workout in the morning and then I’m good for the day! Yess they’re amazing, I hope you find them useful!! Thanks for reading ✨

  3. Wow your so good going to the gym that much I hardly like to go once a week, I really wish I was someone who really like the gym but I’m going to start doing more at home workout and walking more! Great post x

    • It’s not too difficult once you get into a routine! But yeah definitely try working out from home first and find something you enjoy! We all prefer different types of exercise! x

  4. I loved this! It’s so true what they say about starting being the hardest part. It’s second nature by the time you find a way to work it into your routine. I love Fitness Blender for at home workouts. So glad you mentioned Grace’s bands too. I’ve been tempted to pick some up for ages now x

    • Exactly! Once you find a routine that you’re comfortable with, working out becomes more of a habit rather than being something that seems like a chore. You should definitely try them! The material and the guide that comes with them are amazing! x

  5. This post is great! I haven’t been to the gym in months, and now that I have a pup it is going to be a lot harder to go out to a gym as well as university when that starts back up again. I’m definitely going to have to start working on an exercise routine at home, so these tips were definitely needed – and I’ll be checking out your recommended videos, too ☺️

    • Thank you! Ever since I found a good workout routine at home I haven’t felt like I’ve needed to go to the gym! Haha taking your dog for a walk counts as exercise too! Hope you love the videos, Fitness Blender have honestly helped so much with my fitness ??✨

      • He’s still small so the walks are quite short until he grows, but I really need to work on my core – my belly is really starting to grow ? I started using Yoga with Adriene a few weeks ago, but I fell out of the routine again with work, but I love her yoga videos! I’m definitely going to try Fitness Blender alongside her ☺️

        • Oh I feel you on that one ?? yoga is great for toning core muscles though so I’m trying to incorporate it more into my workout routine! Oh I love Adriene! I tried her 30 yoga challenge last year and loved it. Hope you find them useful! I’m always dead after their workouts haha

  6. This is such a great post! I used to be so active but since I started my new job last year I’ve lacked motivation as I’m always SO tired when I get home, I really needed this post to help motivate myself to get back to it as I used to love running and strength training!

    • Ah thank you! Yeah once you find something you love it’s all about finding a routine that works for you! Working out from home has been so important ever since I started my summer job! Thanks for reading! ✨

  7. Such an amazing post !! I just recently started working out and reading this has definitely made me more inspired to continue staying fit! Thank you xx

  8. I used to go to the gym about 4 times a week in my first year of uni… now, I’ve graduated and I just cannot get my arse up and to the gym! I’ve lost pretty much all my motivation which sucks!! Definitely going to try and start again with at-home workouts xx

    • Yeah I have so much more motivation while I’m at uni because I’m in a routine! Now it’s summer it’s so much harder! Thanks for reading x

  9. I’ve been working out at home all summer (missing my uni gym a lot!), and it’s surprising how much you can fit in with no equipment and your living room floor. Thanks for the tips – defo gonna check that youtube channel out!

    • I couldn’t agree more! There’s so much out there that it’s so easy to get in a good workout without the gym! Thanks for reading x

  10. Thank you for writing this! You posted it right when I needed it. Call me lazy, but I’m starting my Fitness with yoga and walking. I will dedicate myself to do more than 7k steps each day from now on and do yoga each morning for 30 days. I definitely agree that when you start working out from home, you can choose the time of the day, but also delay it. I’ve never been to gym, but it’s probably more motivating when you’re there.

    • Yoga and walking is a great way to start! I started off yoga with Yoga with Adrienne’s 30 days challenge and my fitness improved so much more than I expected! Everyone works in different ways! Thanks for reading x

    • Thank you! Yeah 100%! No one’s fitness journey is easy, it’s just about finding what works best for you! Thank you xx

  11. So many signs lately have been pointing me in the albeit right direction of working out and staying fit. I love the idea of staying fit. It’s just that I’m really lazy, I get bored easily and i’m a master at procrastination. Another stump is that I don’t wake up early enough to work out before I have to hurry for lectures (I’ve tried).
    I have a blog at http://thisgirlblogs.com.ng/ so between that and lectures, I live a pretty sedentary life so I’m getting really worried about my health, cholesterol levels, hypertension and all that (I’m a med student so I hear those things everyday. Can get a little scary). I’m going to try and put in more efforts. I’ll try to walk or jog then maybe join a gym or something. Hopefully, I’ll find the exercise routine that makes my soul sing.
    Thanks for the post.

  12. I just started getting into fitness, because I’ve started gaining weight after graduating from my university! I didn’t realize that all the walking I do was making such a difference on my body! Like you said, we spend so much time on the computer now-a-days, especially with my job now, that I need to make a bigger effort at walking around like I did before! I bought some fitness bands too, that I use for my arms! I think I’m going to start incorporating online fitness routines too. Great suggestion! xxx

    • Yeah it’s crazy how much more active we are during term times, you don’t even realise! It’s so easy to go entire days barely moving, but exactly! Just small steps into incorporating fitness into your everyday lifestyle can have a huge impact, thanks for reading ✨xx

  13. I’ve got a resistance band tied to my sink so I can do some legs and bum stuff while I brush my teeth! I’ve actually noticed a difference even with just 2 minutes twice a day so deffo worth looking into doing more stuff at home!
